Uninstalling patches from YOU (nvidia driver)
I tried to install the NVidia driver using YOU, and it didn't work (black screen, funny lines on bottom, hard freeze). Is there any way to uninstall patches in YOU? It doesn't seem like it, and the fetchnvidia patch isn't listed in the programs. I uninstalled manually using "nvidia-installer --uninstall", but I worry that there is still crap laying around that yast installed.
download the installer from nvidia.com for linux IA32 (or IA64 if you hve a 64bit porcessor)
drop into commane line mode...
find / | grep libGL
delete all libGL.so* files and all libGLcore.so* files
then 'sh /path/toNVIDIA-installer.sh'
follow onscreen instructions.
then edit your /etc/X11/xorgconfig file.
change Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia" and make sure Load "GLX" is in there at the top.
the installer wil take care of all.
i tried something like this but after doing that, the 6111 driver kept saying
make mr-proper returns the kernel tree to how it is acter a download.. u'know, the default kernel tree... this destroys all the stuff which is created dureing the kernel compile.
the nvidia driver needs to know info about your kernel to build a driver, you destroyed this date when you make mrproper. only ever make mrproper directly before a new compile.
have you still got the .config file you used to make the kernel ? if yes, copy it to /usr/src/linux
make oldconfig &&
make bzImage &&
now the nvidia driver should compile.
if you dont have the same .config file, then you must re compile and install your kernel.
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/
cp .config /boot/BACKUP_CONFIG
then edit your /boot/grub/menu.conf
yeah i had my old config. i recompiled. and used the -K -k 2.6.x options.
